De(education)
Lack of fund may raze MDGs
07/02/2008

When the UN came out with Millennium Development Goals in 2000; with universal primary schooling for all boys and girls, as one of its goals, alongwith seven other similar goals, UN members and leading institutions which participated, were over-excited and over-confident over accomplishing it. But at halfway of 2015 deadline, when poor countries are in need of additional $11 billion for spreading education, major developed powers are lackadaisical.

‘Education for all’ is one of the imperative goals to uplift a vast section of global society. Poor school children, specially those who don’t go to schools, are used as low-paid labourers in hazardous occupations, vulnerable to trafficking and often sexually harassed just like oppressed women. On the urge of the World Bank, many underdeveloped countries like Ghana and Kenya have devoted 10% of their national budget for education. Countries like Norway, Sweden & Netherlands are generous to the mission but the US and Japan, like many others are reluctant and stingiest for it. A meeting in Dakar, Senegal, recently, is a pointer towards North’s denial to fund South further. But isn’t North equally responsible when it hunts these poor countries for their national interest?
